Are Etihad struggling on that route? ME/Asian traffic is booming, up 19% last month so surprised they're cutting back

Re: Irish 10/18: Fourth quarter flying

If widebodies aren't available, the 321NEOs open up some alternative, closer options in Africa - like LOS - which could rely on i) expat populations in Ireland, ii) connections to/from North America, and iii) cargo (though, not sure on the latter). CPT would be the preferable addition though. Cheer...

TK might as well go scheduled A330 with one of their rotations at this stage . Turkey seems to be on edge at the moment - very difficult economic times there?

Re: Irish 10/18: Fourth quarter flying

Are there any stats out there for TATL travel? Would be interesting to see how DUB stacks up against the rest of Europe. I've seen it mentioned that it's the 5th biggest hub but never any hard figures. Off the top of my head that's at least 5 more TATL routes for next year (MSP, YUL, DFW, YHM and no...

I've flown EY four times in the past 18 months and loads in economy were healthy every time, one maybe 70% full but the others were jammed, probably 85-90%. Qatar, Cathay and Hainan are probably hurting them a lot more now but hopefully they can make it work with the one daily

Re: Irish 9/18: Autumnal aviation

Minneapolis and Montreal are the two that seem most likely going by the rumour mill, not especially exciting considering AC already serve Montreal and I wouldn't have thought Minneapolis would be a big O&D market. Good to see further expansion nonetheless.

Re: Irish 8/18: An august institution

Re: Irish 7/18: Heatwave madness!

The road and service diversions were largely completed last year were they not?

Is there actually a hold up at the moment or are things still on schedule? There's a lot of noise being made over Ross' failure to appoint a regulator so thought maybe that was a factor

Re: Irish 6/18: Eastern Magic!

As someone who flies CFN - DUB regularly the passport control is a non-issue. Ideally it wouldn't be necessary of course and if I had to queue in T1 I might think differently but in T2 it typically adds about 10 seconds to my journey. Far more pressing issues to sort out
